ORGANIZER: WESTSIDE GERMAN SHEPHERD RESCUE OF LA
EVENT: 2015 LA Marathon
EVENT DATE: Mar 15, 2015
My wife and I became involved with Westside in 2009. I had always had dogs and my wife had not. As a compromise we decided to foster for Westside German Shepherd Rescue and see how things went. Our first two fosters were 8-week-old siblings. We ended up adopting both of them (Zeus and Dutchess). Since then we have fostered more than 50 dogs for Westside and adopted another one (Katie). As a foster it is so rewarding to watch these scared, broken, sick or injured dogs enter our home and then watch the transformation. The day all of our fosters enter our home we get down and the floor with them, hold them tight and make them a promise that from this day forward there life will change. We are very picky about who adopts our fosters. We have been very lucky to find the perfect families for each of our fosters.
